Geek Life Crisis

Welcome to Geek Life Crisis. Who are Steve and Chuck? We have time-traveled to present-day fro the 20th Century (via aging) and now do a comedy podcast. We reminisce about college days while commenting on current geek culture. You'll visit for the geek info, and then we'll yell at you to get off our VR lawns. We are Gen X... in a Millennial World. (Sung to the tune of Madonna's "Material World".)

Episode 40 - "The X-Massacre of Krampusnacht" - a holiday poem

From the creators of the sometimes dark and often comedic comic book "The Black Suit of Death", comes this original holiday poem:

WARRIOR INNKEEPER CREATIVE PROUDLY PRESENTS:

"The X-Massacre of Krampusnacht" 

A Poem for the Holidays 

by E. R. Ellsworth & Benjamin J. Kreger

Read it to the kids, tonight!

-----------------------------------------------------------

Ben and Edward were nice enough to share this with us and wanted us to release it today, December 24th.  Look on my IG feed today for the written version, and the accompanying artwork by Jian Guo. I will probably make this an annual holiday tradition. 

We look forward to having Edward and Benjamin back on our show in March 2018 to talk about the new BSoD comic book, art by Dexter Wee.  

If you don't know who or what the Black Suit of Death is go to www.blacksuitofdeath.com or www.warriorinnkeeper.com. It's an amazing comic book that includes a lifetime of work from Ben Kreger and E.R. Ellsworth.  There are two issues so far, and another one is due early 2018. Do what I did; go to Kickstarter and find "The Black Suit of Death".  And contribute so you get the next issue delivered to your home.

Happy Holidays from Chuck and I!  Thanks for listening to our podcast. We love our listeners and all the people that have helped us get where we are, all the people that participated in our show.  Thanks to Ashley from Kentucky for her awesome contributions and vocal stylings. Thanks to MissGeek89 for her perspective from across the pond. Thanks to the Friends of DeSoto.

Whatever your faith or whatever you believe, you deserve happiness.  2018?  You got this.  What's life without challenges? Take them on as they come, because you will only be stronger for them. 

Please visit Apple Podcasts (in iTunes) and give GLC a positive rating and review?  That would be a great gift to let us know you are one of the "prisoners" - a GLC hostage at heart.

Episode 39 - "SNOOTLE - Interview Author Tia Petty"

Turn on this podcast and go to www.snootle.com to check out Snootle, a comic strip by Tia Petty.  Snootle is a dog going through a "puppy life crisis"! Snootle and Repty the garden snake have adventures while looking out for their human boy Patrick.  Tia just had her first Snootle book published, and you can find it on www.amazon.com or www.barnesandnoble.com.  The book is huge and colorful and makes a great gift.  It's the kind of book that you should leave out on the coffee table so friends can page through it and say "gee this friend of mine has a great sense of humor, and is sooooo good looking."

Tia tells us about how she managed to produce this special tome using only an iPad!  She gives away all the secrets so you can create your own comic strip and make it into a book and compete with her on the store book shelf.  I share my childhood comic strip character I created with her and Chuck, his name is Gimic.  

Also, there's a quiz at the end and Tia does well.  Many more winning sounds than buzzer sounds.

We hope you enjoy this episode!  Thanks for listening.  And really, check out Tia's book, Snootle, you may even want to buy the t-shirt and coffee cup with Snootle's face on it as well.

Snootle's also on Facebook.

PEACE!

Your Buddy,

Steve

Episode 38: "Bladerunner 2049 - Movie Review"

Ridley Scott had a vision of bleak future, but there are flying cars and robots called replicants, so it can't be all bad, right?  Well the newest installment is about replicants replicating the old fashioned way.  And the mysteries of who's human and who's more human than human carry on.

If you love Bladerunner, and want to chat with a couple of geeks about Bladerunner 2049, you've come to the right place. We do all the talking, but feel free to join in.  Or tweet us your thoughts.  We're also on Facebook, Tumblr, and Instagram.

Episode 36 - "Ishtar: 30 Years Hot Fudge Love"

THE EPISODE YOU'VE BEEN WAITING FOR!   WE'VE BEEN WAITING FOR!  The episode that may make you change your name to Carol. (Ishtar reference)

We've been teasing you on IG and Twitter with #bringbackishtar for months now. (Go ahead, google that hashtag.)  Not only are Chuck and I talking about this too hip for the room comedy; we got to interview a big shot filmmaker!  "Waiting For Ishtar" is a new documentary (available December 15, 2017 on VIMEO On Demand). It was created by filmmakers John Mitchell and Jonathan Crombie. Chuck and I were lucky to interview John Mitchell about our mutual love of the misunderstood film "Ishtar".  John's documentary is about a quest; a quest to find a sole video cassette copy of Ishtar, and to uncover why there was a waiting list of 47 people to see it.  While making the movie, John and Jonathan got a lot more than they dreamed.  They were the "Rogers and Clark" (Ishtar reference) of documentaries.  They were the dreamers that didn't give up until they achieved their goal.  Their simple documentary became an adventure.  Oh, and they got to interview, Charles Grodin, Carol Kane, and Paul Williams.  

Enough about John and Jonathon... Chuck and I got to talk ISHTAR!  With a kindred soul, another wise human being that "gets" the humor, loves the songs, and has always wondered why Ishtar got so maligned? 

Ishtar is 30 years old, and it's overdue for a sequel. Step aside Star Wars! We hope you enjoy this interview with John Mitchell.  It was a pleasure having him on the show.  

Instructions: 1) Listen to this podcast.  2) Order "Waiting for Ishtar" using Vimeo On Demand. 3) Buy the blu-ray of Ishtar.  4) Learn all the songs.

AND PLEASE -- review our show on iTunes!  It means so much to us.

Thanks John for coming on our show!  It was great laughing about Ishtar again.

Your Buddy,

Steve

John's twitter: @waitingforishtar

Find us on the Facebook, the Twitter, The Tumblr, and ummmm.... I think that's it for now.
